About

The 2006 Chanel collection by Karl Lagerfeld was well received. Sarah Mower of Vogue said this in her review:

"Karl Lagerfeld's ability to stretch the template of Chanel this way and that according to the moment never ceases. This season, the block-heeled sixties spectator boot he first showed for couture gave him the starting point to design upward into a young and leggy look...Though it was mainly black, with touches of white, cream, and dull pink, Lagerfeld's collection didn't come off as one of the season's solemn pronouncements on sobriety and restraint. Instead, he worked texture, sparkle, and girlishness into surfaces and styling: He used satin ribbons and bows for hair bands and bodices, raw edgings on hems, and gemstones and crystals set in big brooches or as bejeweled necklines set into evening dresses....For evening, Lagerfeld checked off more points of the season, from exaggerated puff-sleeves to sixties Edie-ish baby dolls and various renderings of chiffon dresses layered over trousers. Cute and young was the general impression, but—no surprise—Lagerfeld also ensured that classic Chanel's all-encompassing sweep remained firmly in the mind's eye."

Here we have Look 46 from the runway and this is the embodiment of the look of the show. It is a semi-sheer, almst weightless black silk chiffon baby doll. On the runway it was layered over a fitted back stretch mini and the shoulder left to slouch off on one side. The ruffles at the neck and hem are left with a raw feel and the meticulous pintuck pleat work on the front and back are wonderful. Its semi-sheerness allows for a multitude of styling and the possibilities for how you wear it are endless. Excellent condition

Unlined and semi-cheer. Slips on to wear with no closures. Size tag removed. Chanel logo in metal sewn at the front right above the ruffle. Appears to have been worn very little if at all. The open cut will allow it to fit a range of sizes
